The Bridgemen

I got an email from a bass player in one of the first SF bands so I thought I would jot down my experiences in early 90’s rock in SF. I got to San Francisco in 1991 when I was 20 years old after 18 months living in Santa Cruz with various friends and bandmates…. Read more »

I got the Universal Audio plugins and I thought I would be using them all over, but unfortunately so far I have found them to be dull and kinda muddy. I have to say that I got the project pak which is kinda the smallest amount of them that you can get, so maybe all… Read more »

I posted some new songs on my band site I will be in France for 2 weeks. Unscrewing my head or getting it back on straight I am not sure.

May 23, 2006 at 4:08 am | music.

That would be “Band of Horses – everything all the time”. If you haven’t heard this record, do yourself a big favor and go get it. There are very few times that a band can take something so simple and derivative and give you something so great.

The Beatles – like you’ve never known

I just finished the super long biography of the Beatles by Bob Spitz. It’s about 900 pages but well worth it if you want to really know the Beatles story. I especially like all the history of the recording sessions and the songs.
